This is my review of this pfd 
The astral green jacket is a rescue and guiding pfd
Its clever new design takes the pfd to a new level of comfort with a high degree of practability.
The Tectonics allow outer front panel to move freely with upper body as the inner panel stays anchored in place it has a 1,200 lbs rated  Rescue Harness as well as a dedicated web tow zipped pocket .
The astral green jacket has 3 pockets 2 side ones and a front one
What really sets it apart is the comfort and design of the pfd

The web tow is very cleverly designed to fit in a side pocket

I think this is a fantastic pfd for rescue and guiding its comfort is amazing you really don’t know you are wearing it.
 the pockets and safety features are all well designed and within easy reach should they be needed this is the first pfd to my knowledge which has a whole range of additional accessories like the web tow and throw bag and I am sure this will be the way forward in future design of pfds I particularly like the floating front panel it moves with your body as you move giving both comfort and practibility the retail of The astral Green Jacket is £159.00
